Over 50s put the kettle on for National Tea Day


WARRINGTON’S centre for the over 50s put the kettle on for a tea tasting morning ahead of National Tea Day this Sunday, April 21.

LifeTime, which is run by Warrington Housing Association, brewed up a selection of well-known teas and more exotic flavours including chai, Ceylon, and rhubarb and custard for a blind tasting session.

Abigail Banks, from LifeTime, said: “LifeTime is a centre for the over 50s many of whom are lonely and isolated and having a cup of tea is the perfect way to get people together to socialise and make friends and as we know tea will always taste better amongst friends.”

Drinkers rated each cuppa out of 10 and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the English Breakfast was revealed as the top tea with Earl Grey coming second and Darjeeling, third.

Abigail added: “The unusual ones such as the chocolate orange and apple crumble were a great way of getting conversations going as some liked them and some didn’t. It was lovely to see the members getting so involved with it.”
